Tracking this rapidly expanding and changing world of clean technology markets and sustainable practices is a daunting task. Evolving public policy around the world, led in the U.S. by California, continues to shape the demand for new applications and services as companies, consumers and all levels of national and local governments seek to balance and secure their optimum energy mix and meet evolving climate change standards and regulatory requirements. New products are in-market daily.  Current and future investments— President Obama and Congress plan to invest tens of billions annually in renewables and infrastructure—will dramatically accelerate commercialization.

VX2010 Marketmakers Conference is being substantively designed to help you navigate this complex and rapidly changing landscape. We will offer you both a comprehensive view of the clean and green energy marketplace dynamics and a detailed look at the “drivers of change” in key energy and clean technology sectors.

 

VerdeXchange’s 2010 Conference & Expo is a unique event.  Our cross-platform program agenda includes in-depth, large and small group, panel presentations by global business leaders, public officials, financiers, manufacturers, regulators, and environmental stewards.

By design, the VX2010's conference will provide attendees with an overall understanding of both present, emerging, and needed energy and clean technology market opportunities.  The conference’s format encourages attendee participation and engagement. Conference opportunities for an exchange of solutions, policies, and perspectives, along with the executive networking possibilities afforded, sets VerdeXchange’s 2010 Marketmakers Conference apart from other events.
